Zwickau market place


Play of water and light

Eye-catcher for refreshment

For the 900th anniversary of the city, the city of Zwickau has given a highlight in the old town with the support of sponsors and the “Urban Protection Monument” program. A play of water and light winds its way through the main market , suggesting the shape of the city logo. It combines stainless steel drainage channels, covered with linear gratings type KSM-V, with integrated LED light lines and nine illuminated water fountains in the form of drain boxes with water nozzles and LED spotlights. While in the evening the coloured light is the eye-catcher for, the fountains are also used for a little cooling on hot days.
